More thug cops then, white woman in Utah this time (no doubt if she was black they'd have just shot her). InB4 the "not all cops" crowd starts up. There is clearly some serious flaws in the hiring and training of these people.

Gotta love that Christian charity, Joel Osteen. If hell exists, you're the first one through the fiery gates.

It's amazing how quickly people forget the horrific, brutal past. I went to a concentration camp in Germany this summer, and there were people taking beaming faced, thumbs up smiley selfies under the "Arbit macht frei" signs on the gates to the camp. Smiling over the literal bodies of all the Jewish people buried there. Guess that's why we're doomed to repeat the same atrocities over and over.

In response to a confession. I wonder if you'd feel the same if it was a monument of Hitler.

Robert E. Lee was once asked what he thought about erecting confederate monuments. He said it would be very bad for the south. Many of those statues and monuments were put up during the Jim Crow era, when people were specifically trying to harm black people. They need taken down. Put them in museums, or whatever, but they should be removed.

In response to a confession. Imagine this: someone kidnaps your family. You're terrified. You watch watch your husband be beaten. Your family is split apart. Your children are sold into slavery. Your husband is sold into slavery. You are sold into slavery. People fight to free you, but your slave masters fight, too, claiming it is their right to keep you, a human being, in captivity because you're making them money. Thank God, your slave masters lose and you are freed, but now, you get to look at monuments of the people who fought to keep you in captivity, and nobody cares because your skin is brown, and it's "history." You realize slavery wasn't that long ago? You realize there are thousands of people who can't trace their family tree beyond a sales receipt? Fuck those racist monuments. People have every right to be pissed and shame on our country for allowing them to be built.

I don't have a problem with statues being removed. We don't need them. I do think its pretty messed up that people are vandalizing graves of confederate soldiers. I don't think anyone has a right to mess with a person's grave.

I'm turned off by mobs who say they're anti racist and pull down statues. They have no right to destroy any part of our history. Learn from it, all of it. If they were really anti racist they'd be doing something that would really help the situation.

I can't stand people who have a "Hooray for my team!" mentality when it comes to politics. And the media just adds to it with their right vs. left bullshit. Nothing is ever black and white. When the hell did people stop thinking for themselves? This isn't football. The herd mentality needs to go. There's bullshit on both sides. (And, no, I'm not talking about white supremacists. I think most of us, liberal and conservative, can agree that those people are fucked in the head.)

In response to a confession. And this is why I moved away from the social justice movement in a nutshell. Not because my opinion on the issues at hand have changed, but because people in the movement absolutely refuse to admit that there is any kind of extremism or hate within their own community. It's there, it runs deep and it's never called out or questioned. You get the same thing with the far right of course, but you would hope with social justice warriors being on the right side of history, they would be more honest. But no.
